BSA Tiger Den Meeting Plan 14 – Go See It: Pet Care and Learn About Animals

Preparation and Before the Meeting

For this meeting, you need to arrange to visit a veterinarian, pet groomer, or some other person who works with animals.


Check my gathering activities page for some appropriate activities for your gathering time. Or play a simple game.


If you are away from your regular location, you might not have a flag. Start with the Cub Scout Promise.


Keep business to a minimum. The Tigers will want to move on to the “fun”!


The activities are learning about what goes on at the location you are visiting. These are the electives you are working on:

Elective 43  – “Take a field trip to a veterinarian’s or animal groomer’s office.”
Elective 31  – “Learn about an animal.”

Request some time for questions and answers at the end. Tiger Cub Scouts are very inquisitive.


Just do a simple closing – like the Law of the Pack.

After the Meeting

Make sure the Tiger Cub Scouts thank the people at the location you visited. And start organizing for the next den meeting.
